+
+Releases
+========
+
+There have been no releases in April (a big change compared to the three
+releases in March!).
+
+* Tails 3.7 is [[scheduled for May 8|contribute/calendar]].
+
+Code
+====
+
+* We kept working with upstream to be able to [support VeraCrypt in
+ GNOME](https://github.com/storaged-project/udisks/pull/495).
+
+* [MAT2](https://0xacab.org/jvoisin/mat2) is being developed. Lots of
+ improvements, will come with support for new formats (torrents!) and
+ more.
+
+* We worked on the new [[Additional Software
+ feature|blueprint/additional_software_packages/gui]], that will be
+ ready for Tails 3.9 and will make programs easy to install each time
+ you start Tails (as long as they are available from
+ [[Debian|support/faq/#software]]).
+
+Documentation and website
+=========================
+
+- We wrote a new page to list [[known issues with graphics
+ cards|support/known_issues/graphics]]. Combined with the better error message
+ when GDM fails to start that we introduced in [[Tails 3.6|news/version_3.6]],
+ it should gradually improve a lot the experience of people who cannot start
+ Tails with their graphics card.
+
+User experience
+===============
+
+- We started designing a [quantitative survey of our user
+ base](https://mailman.boum.org/pipermail/tails-ux/2018-April/003540.html).
+
+ What would be useful for us to know about our users?
+
+- We drafted a [[fourth persona skeleton|personas#derya]].
+
+- We removed the zooming effect on the screenshots in our installation
+ instructions which was annoying. ([[!tails_ticket 14678]])
+
+Hot topics on our help desk
+===========================
+
+1. Users are still affected by [[a loss of
+ persistence.conf|https://labs.riseup.net/code/issues/10976]]
+
+1. We received also several reports about [[keyboard and mouse not
+ working after upgrading|https://labs.riseup.net/code/issues/14754]]
+
+1. A few users reported the [[disappearance of a part of their
+ keyring|https://labs.riseup.net/code/issues/15014]]
+
+1. And some users had [[trouble with obfs4
+ bridges|https://labs.riseup.net/code/issues/15548]]
+
+Infrastructure
+==============
+
+- We documented our [[LimeSurvey
+ installation|contribute/how/user_experience/limesurvey]].
+
+Funding
+
+- We participated in the DuckDuckGo Privacy Challenge. We raised
+ $9&thinsp;870 in donations and will receive $33&thinsp;000 in prizes
+ from DuckDuckGo.
+
+ Thanks a lot to everybody who participated!
+
+<!-- I'm not reporting on USB images on purpose: let's announce it once it's 100% confirmed. -->
+
+Outreach
+========
+
+Past events
+-----------
+
+- There was a Tails introductory workshop at the
+ [Flisol2018](https://ranchoelectronico.org/checa-el-programa-preliminar-del-flisol-2018/)
+ conference on April 28, Rancho Electronico, Mexico City
+
+Upcoming events
+---------------

+ Investigative Journalism

+- intrigeri will host a Tails users' meetup in the
+ [Cryptorave](https://cryptorave.org/), May 5th, in São Paulo, Brazil
+
+Press and testimonials
+======================
+
+- The italian association "Mutuo Soccorso", in their last book "Stop al Panico!
+ Difesa legale, note per una maggiore consapevolezza", "Don't Panic!Legal
+ defense, notes for greater awareness" - Bologna march 2018, suggests use
+ Tails (p 132) for high needs of anonimity, to circumvent the
+ censorships, or to manage in an easy way confidential communications.
+ The writers: <https://mutuosoccorso.noblogs.org/>
+ The distribution of the book: <https://www.openddb.it/libri/stop-al-panico/>
+
+- sajolida did an interview with Simply Secure on our [UX process and formative
+ testing](https://simplysecure.org/blog/formative-testing).
+
+* The FIDH - Worldwide Movement for Human Rights, relayed our
+ call for donation by making it clear that Tails is an important tool
+ for Human Rights Defenders in
+ [French](https://www.fidh.org/fr/themes/defenseurs-des-droits-humains/renforcement-des-mecanismes-de-protection-des-defenseurs/tails-est-un-projet-de-logiciel-libre),
